USA—Bushel an independently owned software company for the agricultural supply chain, is integrating with EFC Systems’ Merchant Ag ERP farming software.
Merchant Ag is an E.R.P. system specifically designed to address the unique aspects for agricultural retailers spanning agronomy, grain, energy, feed, management insights, and digital engagement.
Current data-sharing processes in agribusinesses are manual and fragmented, resulting in lost productivity and revenue potential.
“We continue to hear from our grain merchandisers and ag retailers who are looking for ways to improve the digital customer experience for their producers,” said Ernie Chappell, president and founder, EFC Systems.
Bushel’s technologies aim to solve some of the industry’s biggest challenges and bring the grain supply chain together through connected, standardized and properly-permissioned data.
Bushel’s FieldAlytics mobile app allows ag retailers to more efficiently manage fleet dispatching and product placement while more accurately forecasting inventory needs.
And by integrating with business software grain merchandisers and ag retailers are already using, FieldAlytics provides a more centralized, digital experience between growers and ag retailers.
This strengthens relationships between agribusiness and farmers, saving time on clerical conversations, and focusing communication on improving grain marketing and other strategic business conversations. Thus, helping agribusinesses and farm producers become more efficient and maximize profitability.
“Collaborating within ag tech is going to move innovation further along as we break out of technology silos and provide a better experience to the agricultural industry,” Amy Krauth, director of Partnerships at Bushel, said.
“Integrations with Merchant Ag along with our other ERPs is how we can continue building on agriculture’s digital infrastructure and continue solving real problems for agribusinesses and their producer customers.”
Merchant Ag, Vanguard Ag and FieldAlytics are among EFC Systems ‘core software solutions that serve the needs of agriculture retailers and wholesalers with comprehensive features that helps its clients achieve operational efficiency by utilizing data to make more informed decisions.
